Built ShipStation Integrations for our WooCommerce, LemonStand, and Ecwid online stores

Hey folks,

We're an online retailer with multiple product lines including:
1. HANDeBand.com (Grips for your Mobile, iPad/mini tablet, eReaders) - WooCommerce Site (woothemes.com/woocommerce/)
2. RibbedTee.com (Made in USA Undershirts for Men) - LemonStand Site (lemonstand.com)
3. getDeogo.com (Underarm Stain Remover) - Ecwid Site (ecwid.com)

This past year we spent a good amount of time on streamlining our shipping operations to improve efficiencies and reduce costs. One of the investments was to move all shipping operations into ShipStation and to tightly integration our webshops into ShipStation. The ShipStation integrations are now publicly available for purchase.

We ship domestically (within U.S.) via USPS primarily, and internationally through a USPS aggregation partner. If we can be of any assistance, please let us know.

    Just curious what you think of woocommerce and lemonstand? We used Wordpress + YAK for many years and recently upgraded to 3dcart. Tried Ecwid for a short time, but it wasn't a good fit for us. Also curious about what a "USPS aggregation partner" is and how that works.

    WooCommerce is very capable and has a pretty nice front-end experience. Their extension store is growing really fast, which is great, but the downside is that you might have to spend a couple hundred bucks in extensions to get your store fully up and running with all the features/functionality you want. The back-end in WordPress admin isn't the greatest, but it's not the worst we've seen either.

    LemonStand is pretty amazing. You can create an amazing front end experience, and the back-end is pretty powerful and easy to work in. The downside is that it's not inexpensive to build a website on LS, plus it's still relatively new with limited 3rd party modules and available developer resources. Because it hasn't been out too long, some of the advanced functionality (comprehensive inventory management, partial/split shipments, returns processing, special order credits) hasn't been fully developed out.

    For low cost to entry, we'd choose WooCommerce over LemonStand.
    For robust functionality, we'd choose LemonStand over WooCommerce.
    We've heard good stuff about Volusion too, but have no direct experience with it.

    "USPS aggregation partners" are companies like Brokers Worldwide/Asendia and UPS Innovations. They get volume discounts from USPS and pass those volume discounts onto their customers.

    Hi handeband. Do you know if it's possible to integrate woocommerce to work with shipstation in multiple languages using the WPML plugin? The address requirements and fields are different depending on the country. I only signed up for the Shipstation trial and can't figure out how the customer shipping info gets sent over to Shipstation. Appreciate help and advice.

    Hi Allan, our extension is not multi-lingual (different languages) but it should not have any issues with different address formats. We provide a connecter between WC and ShipStation and we map all the available address fields that ShipStation offers to WC. So as long as it's collected via WC, we'll pass it to ShipStation. If you have further questions, you can visit our product page on the WC Extension Store and get in contact with us directly through the link provided.
